What is a Soroptimist (and how do you even say that)??
Soroptimist means “best for women.”
Soroptimists are women at their best helping other women to be their best.
Join us to make a difference locally and globally. It will make a difference to you, too!
Soroptimist is pronounced soar-optimist!
Soroptimist International of Mendocino-Sonoma Coast, Inc. is a mouthful so we use SI-MSC. We are on the coast of Northern California, serving a region from Jenner in Sonoma County up to Elk in Mendocino County. (This area is often called “Mendonoma.”)
SI-MSC is part of the largest international service organization for women, working to improve the lives of women and girls both locally and around the world. Soroptimists, about 95,000 of us, live in 120 countries and territories! Members join the local club which works in their community to make a difference for the women and girls there. The club is part of a greater whole and this gives us the ability to extend our reach as women united to solve problems.

SI-MSC published a book!!
The writing team was led by Deloras Jones and properly helped by Mary Mobert and Linda Bradbrook with the rest of the club.
This book outlines the history of our club, but it also does much more. The club's history is tightly bound with the story of our community on the Mendocino-Sonoma Coast. These are the stories of feeding hungry kids, setting up agencies to help folks who are wounded, and saving lighthouses for the public benefit.
You can get one of our books - and learn about this beautiful community - for a donation of $25.00. Until we update our banking information, please just send a donation of $25 to SI-MSC, PO Box 1964, Gualala, CA. 95445 or stop any member! Include all your contact info so we can send it promptly.
